For those that believe it reincarnation, do you think that ron paul is really john locke in a new body:
They are/were both doctors
They both believe in free market
They both lack charisma
I believe so.
I’ll give you props on the lack of charisma.
One important difference: Locke believed in testable facts, Paul either has a metaphysical belief in magic thinking or else is a demagogue who relies on his followers having a metaphysical belief in magic thinking.
Probably more the latter: Paul cannot possibly be dumb enough to believe his own nonsense.
